Indie filmmakers introducer their new name
Film Independent (formerly known as IFP Los Angeles) made its debut voyage under its new FIND flag Saturday night with a party aboard the Big Eagle yacht, a schooner otherwise known as the Budweiser Boat.
Although the ship remained docked, there was no shortage of scenery. The bay faced Old Cannes with its stone clock tower and a spectacular sunset, while one slip over was another boat of independent filmmakers — Spain’s publicly traded porn company, Private Media Group.
In addition to FIND topper Dawn Hudson, revelers included Javier Bardem, Picturehouse prexy Bob Berney, Lions Gate Films topper Tom Ortenberg and Sony Pictures Classics co-president Tom Bernard.
